DUI Attorneys Defense Strategy
Being arrested for a DUI is stressful. Our DUI attorneys make sure that defending yourself against a DUI charge does not add to your stress.
Our DUI attorneys’ defense strategies include:
- Examining the evidence against you, including evaluating how field sobriety tests were administered and the training of the officers who required them.
- Determining whether health or medication issues may have affected the outcome of blood alcohol content BAC tests.
- Reviewing the simulator solutions and BAC testing material to make sure your Datamaster was in proper working order at the time you took the test.
- Reviewing your prior driving record.
- Advising clients about responding to police interrogation and requests to take field sobriety tests.
- Suppressing evidence to weaken the prosecutor’s case at trial.
Once a thorough investigation has been completed, it may reveal violations of your rights, faulty evidence, and improper police procedures that may be favorable to your DUI case.
